Glenn Rau, M.Ed., R Psych.

Registered Psychologist

# 205, 259 Midpark Way SE, Calgary, AB T2X 1M2

Relationships can be measured on two levels: stability and satisfaction. Sometimes the first goal is to stabilize the relationship (like after an affair). But most of us want more than just stability: we actually want to get along with and enjoy our partner. Fortunately, there has been a lot of relationship research that points the way to the knowledge and skills that are needed in order to achieve this. I love working with couples, and seeing their dynamics improve. I know that things can get pretty bad at times, and you can feel like your relationship is spinning out of control in a negative way. It may take some time, but improvements are genuinely possible. I've worked with very young ....

Relationship counseling is the process of counseling the parties of a relationship in an effort to recognize and to better manage or reconcile troublesome differences and repeating patterns of distress. The relationship involved may be between members of a family or a couple (see also family therapy), employees or employers in a workplace, or between a professional and a client. Couple therapy (or relationship therapy) is a related and different process. It may differ from relationship counseling in duration. Short term counseling may be between 1 to 3 sessions whereas long term couples therapy may be between 12 and 24 sessions. An exception is brief or solution focused couples therapy. In add....

Robert Hammel,

Registered Psychologist

202 4603 Varsity Drive NW, Calgary, AB T3A 2V7

I employ the well researched and proven approach from the Gottman Method to help couples learn about and develop new ways to appreciate and develop greater fondness for each other. I help clients realize that truly the core of an intimate relationship is really friendship, and not necessarily the all encompassing passion and always being "in love" that popular media/culture have led us to believe that marriage should always be about. Marriages naturally wax and wane, and aren't always perfect; sometimes people fight and disagree and that doesn't always have to end in separation or divorce. There are no perfect marriages -- just ones that are good enough to make us feel happy and content

Velma Noble, BA, MA, CCC, CPC, PAg (Ret)

Certified Clinical Counsellor (CCC), Certified Professional Counsellor (Pastoral) CPC)

203, 6628 Crowchild Trail SW, Calgary, AB, Calgary, AB T3E 5R8

Precious few of us are naturally equipped with adequate relationship skills. All too often we find ourselves adrift in unhappy love relationships where unresolved issues and resentments have built seemingly impenetrable walls between partners. My model of choice for couples is relational therapy. I teach the partners how to become a safe, healing and loving presence for each other, building skills that allow the partners to reconnect through empathy and compassion (and let go of contempt and anger). It advocates self-leadership (i.e. each partner takes responsibility for his/her own feelings and to understand how each partner contributes to the conflict). My concept of relational therapy end....

Couples Counselor

Diane Huebert, M.C., R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

4103 D Centre Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2E 2Y6

With an interest in family systems and strategic approaches, working with couples was a natural outcome in my practice. Although conflict resolution and good communication stand to benefit any relationship, during my time working with couples I have found the most significant factor to be the ability to defer the power-struggles that influence all relationships. This translates into choosing to accept and love what is in a partner. Sounds easy, yet the vulnerability involved is often a challenge for most of us. When working with couples focusing on how to assist them in strengthening the bond between the parties is the focus of the work.

Couples Counselor

Cathryn Hanssen, MA, CSAT

Registered Psychologist

Suite 231, Building B8 (Currie Barracks), 2526 Battleford Ave SW, Calgary, AB T3E 7J4

Couples bring different sets of experiences into a relationship, with each person having their own needs and belief systems. When working with couples I allow each person's perspective to be heard. Communication and understanding are very important factors in a healthy relationship. Often when problems occur it is because communication breaks down - strengthening this aspect of the relationship as well as the connection between both partners are important focuses in my work with couples.

Couples Counselor

Brenda Duncan, MSW RSW

Clinical Social Worker

132 - 17th Avenue NW, Calgary, AB T2M 0M6

Working with relationships, I respect each person's perspective and encourage both of you in the process of discovering how you can be more effective as partners in building a better life together. However painful your conflict or disconnection may be right now, there is room to develop interest and skills to enhance the relationship and work together to deal with challenges you face. How we work together depends on your goals and unique circumstances. We will develop a process of counselling which recognizes and values each of you and supports the building of a central, meaningful partnership.

Couples Counselor

Dayna Mullen, M.Sc., R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

1801, 8th Street SW, Calgary, AB T2T 2Z2

My expertise is in Couples Therapy. I help couples develop secure functioning relationships through understanding who they are, where they've come from, and how early attachment and its effect on the brain and nervous system development influence current experiences in relationships. I’m trained in PACT therapy (A Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy). PACT is heavily rooted in attachment theory, developmental neuroscience, and arousal regulation. With this approach, I help my couples understand each other from a whole life perspective. Couples learn how to manage, take care of, and soothe each other. My couples leave my office feeling that they have connected on a deeper level.

Couples Counselor

Eunice Peterson, MA., R. Psych.

Registered Psychologist

#200, 2003-14 St. NW, Calgary, AB T2M 1T6

Couples counseling is an excellent option when a couple is struggling in an area and feels a third person provides the safety, insight or support needed to problem solve. Typical issues might be trust, communication, safety, family of origin issues, finances and conflict management. Research in couples counseling has embraced the uniqueness of both genders and the biological responses that can get in the way of positive change and self-managment. If you feel your relationship needs help, intervene sooner rather than later.

Couples Counselor

Bow Valley Counselling, BA, BSW, MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker

#202 - 2120 Kensington Road N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 3R7

I offered structured and effective methods for working with couples whether the goal is to improve the relationship or successfully separation. I use assessment tools that highlight what is working and not working in troubled relationships where couples want to stay together. Strategies to target problem areas are chosen and practiced in sessions and at home. By improving communication skills, conflict resolution skills and deepening couple intimacy, couples are able to feel more successful in their relationships. When there is closeness and comfort in our most important relationships it can positively impact our overall wellbeing.

Joanna Jewell, M.A., R. Psych., CSAT, CMAT

Registered Psychologist

Most people want communication skills. Granted, those are needed but improving a relationship, increasing connection and intimacy, and navigating difficult conversations around areas of differing opinions involves yourself - you are your most valuable ally in any relationship. Understanding yourself, your beliefs, reactions and having ways to 'show up differently' in the relationship are your best bet to feeling better about your relationship, no matter what aspect you want to work on. Through my therapy techniques, I invite you to understand yourself in relationship as well as learn more effective ways to know and be known, the incredibly courageous work of intimacy.
